Experience

I have tried few contraceptive methods: vaginal ring and zoely and i had lot of side effects that made me stop using those, mini pill with desogestrel is completely another life for me. No aching breasts, no headaches, it is like i am not taking any pill, actually better than that because my period stopped! Everyone is different but i think that this one worths a try
